Power A Unveils First Mini Controllers For Wii

POWER A, the retail consumer products brand of Bensussen Deutsch & Associates, Inc., today announced the launch of its Pro Pack Mini, a MiniRemote and MiniChuk, for Wii. The first of its kind, the Pro Pack Mini offers the same functionality as the Nintendo Wii Remote and Nunchuk, in a sleek, miniature size ergonomically designed to provide a more comfortable grip for players of all ages. POWER A will be showcasing the new controller, along with introducing additional video game accessories, at the E3 Expo in Los Angeles from June 15-17.

Including the MiniRemote that is 35% smaller than the original Wii Remote, the Pro Pack Mini features:

  • MotionPlus compatibility
  • Contoured surfaces providing a natural grasp for more precise handling and eliminating edge pressure points during extended play
  • A silky, soft touch finish for a no slip grip that doesn’t require a glove
  • Larger A, 1 and 2 buttons for overall increased accuracy and enhanced game play
  • Glowing main control buttons for anytime use in any environment
  • A variety of color options including Black, Purple, Pink and Teal

The Pro Pack Mini will have a MSRP of $49.99 and will be in all key retailers beginning in August 2010.

“Players will immediately enjoy the sleek feel and handling of the Mini Remote and Mini Chuk,” said Eric Bensussen, president of POWER A and BDA. “While the smaller devices work well for children with smaller hands, they really provide a more comfortable grip for kids and adults, extending game time, control and enjoyment.”
